Montreal native Cristina Rosato continues her rise in Canada’s film and television industry through a number of new, diverse and marking roles. Among her many upcoming appearances is a role as Samantha Kaye on the popular CBC series “Republic of Doyle”, airing April 14th, 2013. The multi-talented, multilingual actor also plays Francesca on ABC’s dramatic series “Rookie Blue” (which also airs on Global TV in Canada). Her ability to speak several languages fluently helped her book the role of Francesca, which was rewritten to be an Italian-speaking character after Cristina auditioned for the role speaking in an Italian accent.
Cristina can also be seen alongside some of the country’s most notable performers on the hit Radio-Canada French TV series “Trauma”. The series, created and produced by Fabienne Larouche, is in its fourth season and as popular as ever with audiences and critics alike. The drama follows the lives of emergency room doctors—with Cristina among the ensemble cast, playing a controversial Italian neurosurgeon, Dr. Giulia Amaro.
Cristina next appears alongside David James Elliott and Julia Ormond in Reelz Channel’s “Exploding Sun”, as a woman who must bid farewell to her husband in space through Skype, while earth is in jeopardy of being destroyed by a meteor.
Cristina’s busy slate of projects are just the latest credits in an already impressive career for the actor in the entertainment industry. Past credits include roles on CBS’s “Flashpoint”, Showcase’s “Lost Girl”, the Space TV movie “Borealis”, and “XIII: The Series”, opposite Stuart Townsend.
Cristina is most proud of her starring role in the bilingual horror film “Territories”. She played a writer forced to give up false information while being tortured as a hostage at Guantanamo. The film was shot in both French and English and challenged her as an actor both physically and emotionally, through long hours of shooting in frigid Montreal temperatures.
The gorgeous actor splits her time between Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Los Angeles and New York, while continuing to expand her talents both in front of and behind the camera.
Cristina has wanted to be an actor for as long as she can remember. Her passion for the performing arts led her to study acting at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles. Cristina’s hope for the future is to continue working alongside actors that inspire her and to take on more challenging roles. The versatile performer would also like to act on the New York stage as well as write, direct and host “Saturday Night Live” one day.
This hockey-loving actor maintains a very healthy and active lifestyle through running, yoga, ballet and doing random headstands!
